Pink Lady Gratitude Book

This September we have some gorgeous pink collections to show off with Ruby Rock-It Brands.  Today I am sharing a little gratitude notebook which I have created for my daughter who absolutely loves everything pink and sparkles of bling.

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Bella Pink Lady papers (Feathers; Montage), Crafters Choice Bling (Pink 2mm; Pink 6-10mm; Mini Hue Pink 2-5mm; Adhesive Rhinestone Letters)

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Ranger Foam Applicators

Other: coloured mists, texture paste, leftover ribbons/trims

I covered a plain hardbound notebook with the Feathers paper and then roughly added some texture paste, letting this air dry for a couple of hours.

I added some trim on the left side of the notebook and some trimmed print from the Montage paper on the right edges.  I then layered the fussy cut heart balloons from the same paper on the center amongst some scrap ribbons and Adhesive Rhinestone Letters for the title.

I then shaded and blended the Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Inkpads with the Ranger Foam Applicators to match the Pink Lady papers.  I finished it off by adding some pink Crafters Choice Bling and spritzing of mists on top.

My daughter loves this notebook and everyday she writes down everything that she is thankful for.  I love passing on my daily ritual to her, getting her into the habit of appreciating what she has in life and writing them down.

Check out the full range of Bella collections and more online HERE, or at a Spotlight store near you.  I’ll be back soon with another gorgeous pink Bella collection.

Having A Blast

As promised I am back with a fun new Bella Superhero project to share which is a mixed media layout showcasing my daughters having an awesome time.

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Superhero collection, Crafters Choice Bling (Adhesive Rhinestone Letters; Red Hearts, Gold Metallic Bubbles, Mini Hue Gold), Bella Distressing Tool, Fundamentals White Cardstock

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Ranger Foam Applicators

Other: flowers, heart punch, string, coloured mists

As soon as I saw the Superhero Splat paper, I knew it was the perfect base for my next scrapbook page and the photo to go with it.  Perfect for both boys and girls.  I will always be inspired and never get tired scrapbooking those infectious smiles.

How cool are the puffed clouds from the Collage paper? I could not resist adding these to the page, surrounding the photo nicely.

There are plenty of words and sentiments from the Jigsaw paper to choose from which I have added to the page together with Crafters Choice gorgeous Adhesive Rhinestone Letters Bling, which come in a couple of colours and sizes.

For some girly touches, I added some flowers, punched hearts, and Crafters Choice Red Hearts Bling.  I finished it off with some inking and just a few more touches of Crafters Choice Metallic Gold Bling Bubbles and Mini Hue Gold Bling.

I have a quick and easy tutorial on how I created the circle background.  All you need is the Splat paper, a 195mm lightweight bowl, and a black or very dark blue mist.

  1. Lay the Splat paper flat on your working surface and position the bowl right on the middle of the page.
  2. Mist around the bowl and let this air dry.  You can add a big mat, big scrap paper, or newspaper underneath to keep your surface clean.
  3. Here is the finished result.  Do not touch the bowl to keep in the same position for a perfect circle.  You can add as little or as much as you want, and you can experiment with a different colour.

Remember there are no mistakes in scrapbooking, and most importantly, have fun through each process.  Check out the full range of Bella collections at the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE, or at a Spotlight store near you.  There is a good selection for everyone among the Superhero collection.

Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my Superhero post and tutorial.  Stay tuned for more beautiful new Bella collections next month.

Cheers,

Super Dad Card

Next month is the month to celebrate dad’s day in Australasia and today I’ve got a Father’s day card to share with you.  It has the awesome new Bella Superhero collection, one of my favourite boy collections so far.

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Bella Superhero collection, Crafters Choice Bling Mini Hue Red, Crafters Choice Bling Mini Hue Blue, Fundamentals White Cardstock

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood, Ranger Foam Applicators

Other: heart punch, stencil, mists

First I have fussy cut the sentiment from the Jigsaw paper.  With the same paper on the opposite side, I trimmed this down to size as the base for my card.  This will give both the front and back of the card a fun color and print as opposed to a plain backed card.  I then trimmed a Fundamentals White Cardstock to size and adhered this inside the card for writing, covering all the print from the Superhero paper.

Next I stenciled the Ranger Weathered Wood and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks on the front of the card combined with coloured mists and let this dry.  I then punched some hearts from the same paper and layered these and the sentiment onto the card along with some gorgeous Crafter Choice red and blue bling and voila! Superhero dad card done.

Here’s a preview of the Superhero collection.  This is available to purchase at the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE or at a Spotlight store near you.  Perfect for all dad’s day projects.

No photo description available.

Thanks for popping in and I will be back for another Superhero project soon, I am really excited about this one so stay tuned.

Wanderlust Mini Album

Hi there.  Today I have a mini album to share with you featuring Bella’s Wanderlust collection.  It is the perfect travel collection and is versatile for any projects.

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Wanderlust collection, Crafters Choice Metallic Silver Bling, Crafters Choice Metallic Gold Bling Stars

Rangers Distress Inkpads: Evergreen Bough, Aged Mahogany, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Ranger Foam Applicators

Other: White Cardstock, Stencils, Tattered Angels Mist

The 2mm Metallic Silver Crafters Choice Bling is perfect for adding the look of mini studs on the front cover.  It also gave the album cover some interest and texture.

Now let’s have a look inside the album:

I have trimmed the white cardstock to size and assembled it for the base of the mini album.

Next I shaded the edges of each page with the Distress Inkpads (see materials list above) and Ranger foam applicators.


I then stencilled the front and some of the inside pages, sticking to the same colours of Distress Ink.


Next I added some lashings of coloured spritz on selected pages, leaving some of them blank for more spaces to add photos.  After all, I want to squeeze in as much memories as I can into this album.


I then trimmed and fussy cut some words, strips, sentiments, tags, and pieces from the awesome Wanderlust papers and adhered these all over the album.

For the last page, I added a little pocket for storing little keepsakes like tags, tickets and memorabilia.  A fun little touch to finish the Wanderlust album.

I am really pleased on how this mini album turned out.  Now  I just need to get the photos printed and added which will make the album look even better.

Thanks for popping in and I hope I have inspired you to create with  Bella’s Wanderlust collection.  You will love it as much as I do.  These are available to purchase at the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE, or at a Spotlight store near you.

Pink & Purple Shabby Tags

July is a very exciting month for the Ruby Rock-It Brands team as we get to showcase gorgeous and fun new collections.  Today I have a couple of tags to share with you which features two of Bella’s new collections.

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Bella Purple Haze collection, #Selfie Queen collection, Crafters Choice Bling (Adhesive Rhinestone Letters; Iridescent Clear, Iridescent Blue, Iridescent Purple, Iridescent Pink), Fundamentals White Cardstock

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves, Ranger Foam Applicators

Other: heart punch, mists, flowers, ribbons

Me and my daughters are bookworms especially my eldest, so I decided to make them some pretty initial tags with some bling.  Crafters Choice have the perfect range of adhesive rhinestone bling that are very easy to apply onto projects.

For my eldest daughter she gets the gorgeous Bella Purple Haze collection with Crafters Choice Clear Iridescent Bling and shabby finish.

For my youngest daughter she gets the fun Bella #Selfie Queen collection with an assortment of Iridescent Pink, Purple, and Blue Crafters Choice Bling.

Both tags have the Fundamentals Cardstodck for a strong and sturdy base for layered papers, inks, and paints.

I have blended the Ranger Distress Inks (see materials list above) onto to tags to match with the colours of each colllection with the Ranger Foam Applicators.

Here’s a quick tip of adding a frosted look to the Rhinestone Letter:

  1. Gather the Crafters Choice Adhesive Rhinestone Letter, a fine paintbrush, and a chalk mist.
  2. On a clean working surface, place the Rhinestone Letter on its original sheet.  Uncap the chalk mist and lightly dip the fine paintbrush, then brush this onto the whole surface of the rhinestone letter.
  3. Add as little or as much chalk mist onto the letter and let this air dry.  Do not apply heat as this will damage the letter.  This now gives the letter a different frosted finish.

I hope you enjoyed looking through the fab new Bella collections and gorgeous range of Crafters Choice bling .  These are all available to purchase on the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE or at a Spotlight store near you.

I’ll be back soon for another awesome new collection and thanks for popping in.

Christmas Dreams Card

Hi there.  I’ve got a soft Christmas card to share with you today featuring Crafter’s Choice gorgeous new Christmas Dreams collection paired with my favourite Ranger Distress Inkpad colours.

Crafters Choice materials: Christmas Dreams Collection (6 x 6 Paper Pad, Clear Stamps, Die Cut Pack), Cards & Envelopes Pack

Ranger materials: Distress Inkpads (Cracked Pistachio, Spun Sugar), Sponge Applicators

First I’ve die cut a window in front of the white cardstock and inked the edges with Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inkpads and applicators.  I then trimmed a sheet from the Christmas Dreams Paper Pad and adhered this under the window.

Next I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Dreams Clear Stamp Set under the window.  I then added some stencilling on the card and let it set to dry.


I then chose a couple of pretty pieces from the Christmas Dreams Die cut pack and layered them onto the middle of the card.  A few splashes of mists and watercolor are added on top and voila! Christmas dreams card ready to go.

Check out Ruby Rock-It Brands’ full range HERE or at a Spotlight store near you.  Thanks for popping in.

New Traditions – Christmas Joy Card

There’s only just under ten more weeks before Christmas and I have been slowly making some Christmas cards.  I’m excited to share with you my first card for this year’s holiday season, and it was a delight to create with the new Luxury Cardstock range and Christmas collections from Crafters Choice.

Crafters Choice materials: New Traditions A4 Luxury Cardstock Pack, New Traditions Die-Cut Pack, New Traditions Cards & Envelopes

I have used the red card from the New Traditions Card Pack for the base and punched one side of the front of the card.  I then trimmed a Mirror and Matt Card from the gorgeous Luxury Cardstock Pack and punched one side.  These are then layered under the same punched side of the card.

I trimmed a couple more Matt and Mirror card pieces and layered this on top of the card.  I then added some stenciling and mediums on top, and then adhered the joy title from the New Traditions Die-Cut Pack.  I finished the sentiment off by adding a small flower cluster to it.

For a beautiful finish, I trimmed another Mirror card to size and adhered this inside the card.  Last but not the least, I trimmed a small piece of white cardstock and adhered this inside the card which will give me some space to write a message.

Thanks for popping and I hope I got you excited and looking forward to the Christmas season and get creating.  Check out the Ruby Rock-It Brands range HERE or at a Spotlight and a scrapbooking shop near you.
